Episode Summary

EDIT
Wrath Of The Dragon

Long ago, an evil magician used his powers to bring a statue to life - creating the terrible monster, Hirudegarn! It was only through the use of two magic whistles that Hirudegarn was defeated and peace returned to the galaxy. Two courageous brothers, Tapion and Minosha, took control of the whistles and sealed them, along with their own bodies, in magic boxes, which were cast out into the galaxy so Hirudegarn could never be revived again.
But when a mysterious stranger named Hoy arrives on Earth with the secret of Hirudegarn's revival, the Z fighters must turn to Tapion himself to answer Hoy's dangerous threats. Tapion has once before sacrificed his well-being to save the universe. With Hirudegarn destroying everything in sight, Goku, Trunks, and Goten must battle like never before in order to save the planet!

  • Dragon fist EXPLODE!!!!!!!!

    9.8
    This movie explains alot and has lots of emotion in it and it also leaves you thinking at the end to. I would have to say this is the best dbz movie since lord slug. DBZ the wrath of the dragon outclasses every dbz movie to date. You find out why trunks gets his sword. If you wan\'t a dbz movie that has more then just fighting in it then this movie is for you! Story



    Tapion and his brother lived happily on there home planet untill one day a monster was unseald and destroyed most of there planets population, Luckily tapion and his brother found 2 ocarinas and a sword and cut the monster in half but the catch is they both had to seal one half of the monster inside of eachother and then they would have to be seald in a sacred music box. 1000 years later goku and his freinds meet a strange alien and gather the dragonballs to unseal tapion but little did they know tapion did not want to be unseald because a monster is seald inside of him.moreless
  • Saving the best movie as the last one with a special 400 word review, "Dragonball Z" goes out with a BANG!!!! 8)

    10
    The one thing that has kept me hooked onto "Dragonball Z" is its ability to always keep me hooked onto the intensity and ferocity of the way all the different heroes fight against all the different villains that appear in every saga. Goku, Gohan, Vegeta, Trunks, and Goten must all make a valiant stand to save Earth from the most menacing villain to ever threaten the Universe! :D When a mysterious alien named Hoy arrives on Earth, he begs the Z fighters to help him open a music box. The box contains a great alien warrior named Taipon, the only being who can help the Z fighters defeat a galactic menace known as Hirudegarn! The dragon-like monster is a phantom of mist and shadow. Not only is he powerful enough to take on Super Saiyan 3 Gotenks, he's strong enough to beat Gohan, Vegeta, and Videl easily! But he HAS been defeated before. :idea: 1,000 years ago, Taipon and his younger brother Minotia, with the use of two magic ocarina's and a sword, managed to subdue the savage beast, but with a catch! Hirudegarn couldn't be destroyed outright by the sword alone. Instead, after Hirudegarn was cut in half, the two halves of Hirudegarn were sealed inside of Taipon and Minotia. They themselves were sealed inside two music boxes and cast out to separate ends of the galaxy. But now Hoy has killed Minotia, freeing the lower half of Hirudegarn! And now Hoy is biding his time, waiting for Taipon to fall asleep so the upper half of Hirudegarn can be revived as well! Fortunately, Gohan manages to discover that a sword and an ocarina isn't the only weakness Hirudegarn has. As Hirudegarn attacks the Z Warriors with his intense emotions, his body is vulnerable to a physical attack. Using that knowledge, Goku powers up to Super Saiyan 3, tricks Hirudegarn into becoming the most emotional he's ever been, and Goku uses the super-cool power move of Dragon Fire, to destroy Hirudegarn once and for all! :) And for Trunk's kindness to Taipon, Trunks got to keep Taipon's sword, which turns out to be the same sword Future Trunks uses to destroy Freeza! This was a great movie, and a great way for "Dragonball Z" to close its awesome greatness! I loved this movie which is why I'm giving it such a great review! 8) Enough said, true believers! ;)moreless

    This is the movie when an evil alien that was a part of an alien race that wanted the entire universe for themselves tried to fool Goku and the other Z fighters that in a magical box lied a great hero, Tapion.They used the dragon balls to release him, but whenever he falls asleep or is weakened, an evil monster's spirit flows out of his body.Now it's up to Tapion, Goku, Gohan and the rest of the Z fighters to stop the giant beast from destroying the Earth as it is going to do with the entire world.While Tapion and the others are knocked down by the enraged beast, Goku jumps into Super Saya-jin 3 and uses the special attack Dragon Fist, defeating and sealing the beast once and for all.moreless

    9.5
    A mysterios man appears in town that claims he will commit suicide by jumping off this tower. Saiyaman and Saiyaman number 2 (Videl) rush to the sceen and save the man. Once talking to the man he reveals that he has a powerful warrior in a musical box! Although he cannot open it. Gohan and Videl bring it to Bulma with no luck the Z-Warriors gather the dragonballs and the dragon opens the box. The man says that this warrior will be able to defeat a great evil. After the warrior appears he reveals that his name is Tapion and that the old man has lied. The older man then dissapears. Tapion runs away to a secluded area. Gohan and Videl rush downtown to find that this monster is destroying the city! Gohan attempts to fight it with no luck just then Tapion is seen playing a flute. The moster then dissapates. After this Tapion is seen with the moster, but while playing his flute it dissapears. Tapion becomes friends with Trunks and after Trunks falls asleep he tells his story to Bulma. At his home world the monster destroyed many things. The gods gave him a sword to slice that moster in half. One half of it was placed in him and the other in his brother then they were each placed in a music box. After this they were sent to oppisite ends of the universe so they would not become the whole monster ever again. It seems that the old man is one of the people that helped bring this moster into this world in the first place. He united both Tapion and his other half. The moster was complete. The Z-Warriors tried to attack, but it didn't help. Trunks and Goten fused to Gotenks and attacked the monster. After this they belived it dead was wrong. The monster then hit Gotenks and made them un-fuse. Then it looked like Gogeta attacked with "Dragon Fist Assualt". I am NOT sure if it really was Gogeta or not. Once then Tapion gave Trunks his sword and departed.moreless
  • My review of the very impressive movie, Wrath of the Dragon.

    9.5
    The movie starts with an old man who is threatening to commit suicide by jumping off a huge tower, however Gohan trys to get him to stop while Videl tells him to jump, the old man doesn't like this and jumps, but of course Gohan catches him.



    The old man then goes on to tell Gohan about a huge evil that is going to destroy the earth and that the only hope is a warrior called Tapion who is trapped in a kind of music box. The problem is the box is locked tight, however this is overcome thanks to Shenron after a wish for the box to be opened.



    Anyway, Tapion is released and is not best pleased, this is because he was locked away for a reason, the reason being he hold the key to a hugely powerful moster called Hirudegarn and if he does not play his special flute it will be unleashed.



    Tapion grows a strong bond with Trunks and in a cruel twist Tapion asks Trunks to kill him using his own sword, Trunks takes to long to make his decision and Hirudegarn is released smashing the flute in the process, can anyone defeat this monster?



    Hirudegarn procedes to defeat anyone that gets in his way, Gohan, Vegeta, Videl and Gotenks all suffer its might, however, you can always rely on Goku, he transforms into a Super Saiyan 3 and after a struggle he unleashes his Dragons Fist on Hirudegarn and saves the day, again!



    At the end Tapion has to leave for his home planet and before he goes he gives Trunks his sword, aww, how sweet!moreless
